TOOTH EXTRACTIONS IN WINSTON SALEM
COST OF TOOTH EXTRACTION
A number of factors are relevant to the final cost of a dental procedure. Each insurance policy is different, and the type of extraction required also has an effect on the price, as well as what is covered by insurance. By staying up to date with preventative care, such as exams and X-rays, you can put yourself in a better position to avoid any overly invasive procedures—the longer an issue goes on, the more costly and complicated it becomes.
Once your procedure is complete, you can get back to business as usual quickly, usually within a few days or a week. However, it’s important to allow the healing process to finish before doing anything that could aggravate it, as setbacks can make your body take longer to heal.
EXTRACTION FOR ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT
Dentists sometimes need to remove teeth prior to orthodontic treatment prior to orthodontics procedures, however this is becoming less and less frequent. In more severe cases, such as correcting bite problems or facial deformities, oral surgeons often cooperate with orthodontists to address the issues.

WHY WISDOM TOOTH EXTRACTIONS ARE OFTEN NECESSARY
Due to the invasive nature of the procedure and the sometimes painful side effects, it’s common for people to question whether they need their wisdom teeth removed, especially since their growth is often painless.
Reasons we take out wisdom teeth:
- Typically more good reasons to take them out rather than leaving them in
- They hurt when erupting
- They can create irreparable defects in surrounding teeth
- Other reasons can be discussed with dentist
While wisdom teeth removal isn’t necessarily right for everyone, the risks of not undergoing the procedure generally lead dentists to recommend doing it sooner rather than later. After looking at X-rays and seeing the positioning of the wisdom teeth, they should be able to give a recommendation on the best course of action.
I have been a patient of this practice for several years and cannot say enough great things! Though I typically see Dr. Spangler, all three doctors are extremely knowledgable, thorough and attentive to detail. The staff as a whole combines professionalism with genuine concern for the patient to provide individualized care. Scheduling or being seen in a timely manner has never been an issue as the administrative staff members are kind, caring and extremely helpful! I recommend this office to all of my friends-- my family members are already patients 🙂
My daughters and I went for a new client appointment today and were thrilled with their staff and level of service provided. Would highly recommend their office to anyone looking for top quality dental service.
Absolutely fantastic dental practice - I have been a patient of Dr. Leal's for years and have received top notch dental care. The business side of the practice is great too. I could not be more pleased with my total care - dentists, hygienists and office staff. They genuinely care about me, are very respectful and have always run on time for my appointments.
